UKCPS 13th Open Exhibition

A couple more updates. I am going to work this one right to the wire I think. It’s out of my comfort zone but I am enjoying it.

IMG_0291 IMG_0292A few things I have learned from this piece already.

1. Faber-Castell Polychromos do not like Stonehenge paper.

2. I like Stonehenge paper more than I thought.

3. Derwent Coloursofts and Derwent Drawing pencils absolutely love this paper. They go on like velvet.

4. I need to go back to doing the transfer method of drawing as I hate seeing my gridlines and drawing outlines.

After drawing the figures at the top of the composition with Polychromos, I changed to Coloursofts and Drawing for the graffiti wall which work so much better on the Stonehenge. I can’t explain fully and maybe it’s my drawing style but the Polys slid, clumped and shone on the paper in ways I didn’t like. I don’t feel the benefit of using Stonehenge with them. But the other pencils are grabbed by the velvet-like Stonehenge and build in dense waves of colour.

Anyway, onwards I plough.
